Peschiera on Garda Lake

Peschiera is the westernmost municipality on the Veronese shore of Lake Garda. Surrounded by the canals of the River Mincio, it lies on the slopes of the Moreniche hills.

The historical centre is enclosed within characteristic walls that once protected the town and its inhabitants.

Thanks to organised boat tours, it is possible to admire the beauty and history of the town of Peschiera along the characteristic Canale di Mezzo and passing under the Voltoni bridge, considered the symbol of the town.

Curiosity: The Peschiera Fortress has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 2017.
